Congratulations, Madonna University Graduates!

Information has been updated for this year's Graduation Activities.

The President’s Reception for Graduates is hosted by President and Mrs. Grandillo. It is for all graduating students (by invitation only) both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

WEATHER DELAY: President's Reception for the Graduates, April 29

We have been monitoring the weather for tomorrow, April 29, and the hourly forecast indicates that the rain should stop around 5 p.m.  In order to provide our facilities and media teams enough time to set up for the President’s Reception for Graduates, we have decided to move the start time forward half an hour, to 7 p.m. 

If it is still raining at 5:00 p.m. tomorrow, we will not be able to hold the reception, and we will send you another email. 

If, for some reason, you no longer are able to attend tomorrow night’s reception, please reply to this email. 

We look forward to seeing you at the President’s Reception to celebrate our graduates' achievements.  Please wear a mask and if you are not feeling well, please stay home and rest.  

Invitations will be emailed to graduates. RSVP by completing the Graduation Participation Form.

Receptions for the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021 will be combined.

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 ... College of Education & Human Development

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 ... College of Arts & Sciences and School of Business

Thursday, April 29, 2021 ... College of Nursing & Health

Receptions will be held outdoors on the Livonia campus from 6:30 - 8 p.m.

  • Business casual is the suggested attire (no denim, please). For example, nice slacks, collared shirt, ties, or dresses for ladies.
  • Confirmation provides on-site event details and will be emailed a week prior to the reception.
  • Graduates are encouraged to attend the reception for the school or college from which they will earn their degree; however if their schedule does not allow for that, they may attend the other reception.

This reception provides a chance for graduating students to celebrate their academic achievements and upcoming graduation with President Michael A. Grandillo, Ph.D., Provost Lewis Walker, Ph.D., university leadership, members of the commencement committee, the college deans and faculty, and other graduating students. Representatives of the alumni department will be available to answer questions about staying connected to MU after graduation.
